VENICE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH CEMETERY
3694 Millers Run Road
McDonald, PA 15057
(Venice, Washington Co. PA)


SPAM ALERT!
(Please: REMOVE "-nospam-" from E-Mail addresses to SEND TO)

Location: Route 50, 1/4 mile east of Route 980, 10 minutes from I-79, Exit 54 at Bridgeville, PA

When you find the church on Millers Run, pull into the lower parking lot and take the small, asphalt driveway to
the left, it looks like it just goes to the church, but it then goes into the cemetery. DON"T take the straight dirt road,
it is only one lane, and goes back to a farm, and is IMPOSSIBLE to turn around on.

The church itself doesn't hold any records about the cemetery. There is a Cemetery Board who may be able to help.
President-Ken Teissier (412) 221-8992.
